no interruptions, please!
Vinyl records (and cassettes and reel to reel) are better than CDs, mp3's, DVD's or internet streaming. You care to hear why?
I'm listening to Truckin'/The Other One/Wharf Rat. At the finish of Truckin', there was a slight hiccup as this player advanced to track six so I could hear Billy do his thing. Alright, what can you do?
Now we come to the end of Billy's solo, and I'm getting ready to hear Phil take us into The Other One. But nooo! (as Belushi used to say) I've got to wait almost two seconds as we advance to track seven.
Ever hear of the saying, "Less is more?" How about less tracks and more of a complete (uninterrupted) listening experience?
There's an annoying hiccup at 5:25 in Bobby McGee.
